Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

These pants are my absolute favorite things right now. I wear them every day and my wife hates when I wear something every day. But, she does like these.

These are stretchy. Look like you're dressed for the day, feel like you're wearing sweats or PJ's. Pair these babies up with a stretchy arcade belt and boom! ...comfort overload.

I'm 5'11" and about 185lbs right now. normally were a 34. 34 in these feels true to size. Definitely "slim" but not too skinny.

I love them and I'm going to get some more.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

My wife was headed out for a week-long camp and was in need of some new pants. We looked at several. Based on what we read as well as style from photos, we chose these.

Wife says that they are lightweight and stretchy. She feels that she kept cool in them when hot outside. She also loved the capri flexibility. They appear to be well put together and should be durable given their lightweight composition. Style is awesome. As stated below, these have slimmer fit legs; but, not too tight.

True to size. wife wears an 8 and the 8 fit just right.

If you just want to shoot footage to watch and relive moments ...go with the silver. If you are into editing and making films ...go with the black. The black has several more resolution options and features that make it more versatile when creating edited content.

The GoPro app is awesome and allows one to instantly view what is on their GoPro without removing the card.

Also, thumbs up for the remote.

The only reason for not getting 5 stars is that when not using app or remote, you still go through the process of " dude ...is it on? dude ...is it in camera mode?" ...etc.

Quality is amazing. For reviews stating otherwise, I would be suspect of a bad unit or an incorrect setting. The quality is really really good.

We purchased some Safe Tech Duluxe Updated harnesses because they give piece of mind.

Every loop and attachment point is rated making the "entire" harness very strong.

Gear loop placement along with double belay loops make this harness functional and allow for better gear/rope organization than traditional harnesses.

Safe Tech harnesses are most likely over-kill for the beginner or average sport climber; but, they make a great harness for large or complicated routes ...or out of the box adventures ...see pic below.

GERONIMO!!!

When jumping out of a hot air balloon with a 1/4 mile of rope attaching you to your anchor on another balloon... Well, this is the only harness we were willing to trust our lives with.

Oh, and it makes for a really really safe and strong harness for climbing as well ...which is all that you should do with this harness.

People have preferences. I have used many different bindings and I prefer Salomon. For me, Salomons do exactly what I expect. They release when they should and I never worry about them pre-releasing when they shouldn't.

What I love about this binding is that among the changes, there are some basic features that stayed the same as the salomon 900 series bindings I have been using for years. Although the heel is now different (same as Guardian) the toe shares the same hole pattern as previous models and functions the same. I feel just as comfortable on this binding and what I expect as I have on all my previous Salomon clamps.

I'm a fatty and also the best skier on the mountain ...so I considered the WTR16 to get more metal. Honestly, the WTR13 is a great binding and after a season, I have no worries about a little less metal compared to the 16.

I threw these on a brand new pair of what is still my favorite pow ski. Love the 130 or hate it ...classic OG pow pow ski.

Note: I traded someone 115mm brakes for a pair of 130mm. This is the only downside to the STH2 WTR's. you can't get every width in both the 13 and 16.

Note 2: The bit about me being the best skier on the mountain may or may not be sarcastic

Cocoon does have a rip-stop version of this silk liner; but, to my knowledge, the rip-stop version is only available in one color which is Tuareg. If it is not Tuareg color and not noted as rip-stop, it is just the standard silk version.

On that note, knowing there was a rip-stop version, I wanted it. I then picked up the standard version because I got a deal. I have had 0 snags or tears after a few years of use. I will have no concerns about buying a non rip-stop version again if my current liner ever dies.

Happened to use my liner again this weekend. It is a great piece of gear that I could have never imagined liking so much. I will now always own a liner. I originally purchased to protect my bag; but, I now love it because it makes my sleeping set-up much more versatile.
